MIW vs UPWW Match Preview

Yastika Bhatia has performed admirably at the top of the batting order, registering a half-century in the first match of the season. Nevertheless, the team will be looking for her to maintain consistency. Hayley Matthews is yet to hit her stride, but it is only a matter of time before she finds her form.

The main strength of Mumbai lies in its middle order. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur has set an example for the team, scoring 101 runs in just 2 innings. She has received valuable support from Nat Sciver-Brunt and Amelia Kerr. Both players have also excelled with the ball, collectively taking 9 wickets.

Amelia Kerr leads the season's wicket-takers with 6 dismissals. Shabmim Ismail delivered an impressive performance in the previous game, claiming 3 wickets, and will spearhead the bowling attack with the new ball.

Despite possessing a formidable batting lineup, the Warriorz have struggled to accumulate substantial runs. Both Alyssa Healy and Vrinda Dinesh have failed to provide a strong foundation for the team in both matches. Although there are a couple of talented all-rounders in the middle order, such as Tahlia McGrath and Grace Harris, their performances have been inconsistent.

In the previous match, Shweta Sehrawat showcased an impressive display by scoring 45 runs off 42 deliveries, even amidst the continuous fall of wickets. She will undoubtedly play a crucial role in the team's batting lineup. Unfortunately, the bowling department has been equally underwhelming.

The spinners, Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Sophie Ecclestone, have managed to claim 2 wickets each, while Poonam Khemnar and Gouher Sultana have remained without a wicket.


Weather Report

The weather is likely to be warm and humid and there might be some dew on the ground during the latter half of the match. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Bangalore has an even covering of grass but is on the drier side. The bowlers will get some help early on in the match if they hit the right areas. However, the pitch gets better to bat on as the game progresses. Anything under 180 is easily chasable on this ground.
